A Confession, I Bought Good Poetry


Yep, I am guilty,
go ahead and hang me,
I bought poetry last night,
on the street.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~

Sitting waiting for my veggies
on flour tortilla,
approached I was by a man,
full of sweet-smelling Sangria.

He was polite
and very unique,
I wanted to hear,
and more I did seek!

He started reciting verse,
directly from heaven,
so angelically pure,
my surroundings it did deafen.

I touched him,
held his shoulder,
closed my eyes
as he got bolder!

My soul he did rock
and then even more,
my heart took off,
it really began to soar!

Larry Rogers the best darn poet,
if the world heard him,
they would instantly know it!

Homeless he was
and donations were his pleas,
Oh Larry Rogers, my soul last night,
you did overwhelmingly sublimely please!

What was the true value
of his grand gift of verse?
Who can say?
But I love that man and gladly
emptied my whole money purse!

    This reminds me of the Joni Mitchell song, For Free, where she comes across a musician on the street, playing so sweet, for free....one of my favorite tunes....Your write reminds us all to stop and listen, to even those who normally would be passed by....There are treasures to be uncovered and discovered. Seems while making his day, he made yours...Such a simple price to pay to be heard, to be able to share. Thank you for this one! (Report) Reply

Whate'er we leave to God, God does,
And blesses us;
The work we choose should be our own,
God leaves alone.
